Overview

The command-line interface is a secondary service interface in IP Fabric VM which serves troubleshooting and testing purposes. For example, for testing authentication credentials from the specific IP address of IP Fabric VM, in case of address-restricted access. The CLI interface is the main tool in servicing the system by the support teams.

The command line also allows the use of the standard networking tools, such as telnet, ssh, traceroute, ping or tcpdump.

From 5.0 release, the osadmin account is no longer restricted to chroot only and has access to the whole system.

The osadmin account has sudo rights with the osadmin password and a standard 5 minutes retention.

Note

Password cannot be changed via cloud-init or passwd, please run command nimpee-net-config -t to change osadmin password.

Warning

Any action on the CLI as the root, osadmin and/or autoboss user may severely damage the product and/or the system itself. Such actions taken without direct communication with the IP Fabric Support or Solution Architect teams can render the system unusable.
